No sportsman ship there let em fly
Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
I am tired of the lies and crap, YOU by your own actions must make your own life matter!
I do not, but without a dog I can understand if the bird refuses to fly. It has to be a safe shot no matter what game you are shooting at.
I remember running after a pheasant to try and get him to fly....mannnn that was funny! Them suckers are quick and turn on a dime like jerry rice. I did get that bird in the air eventually for someone else to get a shot...team work
Also remember someone shooting at a pheasant that was on the ground and IN A PUDDLE...idiots. That one almost got real ugly
Definitely shoot em in the air
Cold, windy, walking around for hours, shot is safe (know your target and beyond), that bird is going to get lead to the back of the head. Was out yesterday morning and had a few birds that wouldn't fly..I tried to kick em up for my Fiancee but they just ran. Should have just shot them...they are breed to get shot, they wont last the winter, they cant reproduce, and I paid $40 to shoot the damn things. If its a safe shot, and you aren't hunting with dogs, why not take it.
I am moving to SC in a month which has a 12 per day pheasant limit. With numbers like that I would only shoot in the air.
Had this guy under my stand on Whittingham for nearly 3 hours on Friday. I was out with the recurve. He never moved from the time I got there till the time I got down. I walked up to him at 3 yards, snapped this pic, and he got up and trotted away: If I had a pheasant stamp, I think I'd have had breaded breast fillet's for dinner:
